Changes to Email Authentication

You may soon lose access to your University email if you use an old or unmaintained email client. Even if you don’t, you may need to make changes.

Microsoft has announced that to improve security, it is changing the way email clients can authenticate to the University email server. This may result in some older and un-maintained email clients no longer being able to access the University email service. This change is scheduled for the 1st of October 2022, or soon after.

For more details of what is happening, and how it may affect you, please see:

Please note that the decision to make this change was Microsoft’s – it was not taken by the School of Informatics, or the University of Edinburgh.
